Sweeping and epic!
Kate was my favorite character. She was a strong woman, who never let the fact that she was orphaned at a young age, or that her future turned out to be much different than she expected be an excuse to give into whining and self-pity, though there are a few times where she probably could be forgiven for doing so. Also, Kate is a woman of strong convictions, and she remains steadfast and dedicated to those convictions, even when an easier path presents itself. In a literary world of whiny, wishy-washy female leads, Elle Bright's Kate is a breath of fresh air!
Kathleen Mary Carthy was EXCELLENT! She made the men sound like men, and the women sound like women. She has a true story teller's voice.
If I could have, I would have listened to this in one go. As it was, I listened to Fall of Darkness when I got ready for work and driving to work at 4 a.m., and every time I had to turn it off, I wished I could keep listening!
If Kathleen Mary Carthy keeps reading Elle's words, I'm going to keep listening!
